That sounds almost exactly like my setup with a few small exceptions ... I have the 108" screen and no motorized blinds is I am in a dedicated HT room in the basement that's pitch black. Screen wall is black velveteen along with first 4 feet of the room (and soon to be most of the room once I find the time to install the rest of the velvet). I just bought my second Elunevision 1.0 reference fixed frame screen from them and with the my new 5030UB it looks fantastic. Haven't even calibrated yet (no sense until i finish the room and put some more hours on everything) and I'm already very happy with things are looking and sounding. I bought a bunch of my gear from them this time around including 6 new HT chairs.
What is your viewing distance to the 108" screen?

this is a nice combo. with velvet dark curtains I am sure it will look even nicer.

from 92" screen just over 9 feet as recommended (I believe it is something like .84 x width of screen for optimal viewing distance, with less than 26 degree head angulation from seated position.

The money seat is probably about 12' but with three rows it ranges from about 8' to 16' or so.

Got my 115" elunevision reference 4k fixed screen up the other day. Very happy with it, I went with the 5" frame and I am not disapointed. I was worried that I should have gone with the smaller frame and slightly larger viewing size, but after seeing my screen up on the wall, any doubt went a way.


Assembly was pretty easy, their instructions are not the best, but relatively easy to figure out. Stretching the material on the screen was not as difficult as I thought, but I had my father-in-law over to help, it would have been 100x harder to stretch it by myself.


Installing on the wall was pretty easy. There is a slight arc to one of the vertical frame rails, it pulls one corner off the wall about an inch, whcih vibrates when the subs go off. I'm going to buy some heavy duty velcro and stick the bottom of the side edges to the wall to stop the vibrations.


overall I am very pleased with the screen and it looks awesome!

Can any owners of the Reference Purebright 4K 240 screen material give me some feedback of what the screen is like in use?

The marketing blurb claims "no texturing, hot-spotting or sparkling". Is this true?

Has anyone compared this material to the older DaLite HP 2.8 directly?

I have been using the Purebright for a few years now. I do not have any comparisons to the DaLite screen, but I can attest to the fact that the Purebright has no hot-spotting or sparkling. We have been very happy with the screen and the high gain allows us to play our games with lots of light in the room. Honestly, the only time we blackout the room now is when we watch dark stuff like Game of Thrones or some movies. Otherwise, we always have some lights on. I know the purists are probably cringing as they read this, but it works for us!

How wide is the viewing angle that provides the high gain?

We have a relatively long and narrow room, so all of our seats are inside of the edges of the screen. Within these angles, there is no discernible drop-off in gain.

When I had an ALR screen, the gain fell from 1.5 near the centre of screen, to 0.75 near the edges of the screen, when viewed from the optimal seating position. Visually, the falloff was not that noticeable.

However, when I place some plain white paper at the centre and at the edge for comparison, it became immediately obvious - the screen is brighter than the paper at the centre, and dimmer than the paper at the edges.

My screen doesn't have that drastic a drop-off at all. That was the first thing I looked for when we put it up - we certainly can't see any change from centre to the sides. If you sit at an extreme angle (ie. more than 60 degrees), it is definitely not as bright, but somehow the dimness seems relatively uniform across the entire screen. Not sure how that works, but that is how it seemed to us when viewing some calibration images.

As an owner of Elunevision Reference Studio 4K Tab-Tensioned screen I'd like to express my dismay with this company. They're not being quite honest regarding the branding of their screens. Both fixed and tab-tensioned versions of Reference Studio 4K screens are called the same and being positioned as completely textureless screens. But my screen has slight sparkling and the texture could be seen on camera pans on a bright solid-colored backgrounds: Screen-Tech screens

Seegs has just confirmed that their fixed screens are indeed can be deemed textureless: LED projectors

The different screen materials should be branded differently. It should be clear that with the comfort of the tab-tensioned screens also comes drawbacks such as slightly more visible screen texture. For some it might not be an issue at all but for some it might be a reason to continue the search.

Got my Reference 4K fixed screen (108") installed/setup last weekend. Installation was a pretty straight forward by myself; I did mount the frame with no screen material to double check everything was square and straight. Stretching the screen wasn't bad at all with one person either.

Screen itself looks incredible and probably something I should have purchased a while ago but I cheaped out and did first a DIY (blackout material) then an inexpensive Draper.

On the Elunevision, the frame is a 4 piece that in extremely heavy duty aluminum; the top/bottom/side rails are all one piece so no concerns about sagging over time. They even included a soft drop cloth bigger than the finished screen with which to build it on and protect the screen.

Overall I'm very pleased with the screen; I see no hot spotting, no sparkles of any kind and just a great overall picture with a very wide viewing angle. Highly recommended screen and if you are in Canada, give Eastporters a call; those guys are amazing to work with!

How far away is your projector from the screen? I am considering a PureBright 2.4 but my projector is only 10 feet away from the wall. Will this cause a problem with hot spotting?

I believe the PureBright 2.4 is retroreflective. Retroreflective screens do not hot spot unless the viewer is extremely close to the screen - perhaps three feet or less.

how does one get a sample of the elunevision reference purebright 4k 240 screen?
I emailed them and they said they do not give out samples.
